if that's what you call the necky bit under the chin.

I've been quite worried about it, it had begun to look a bit baggy. Last time I lost weight, 2004, I ended up with a petite little face but how many times can you blow up the balloon past bursting point?!?

However, I noticed yesterday that it's changed shape quite a lot, from a sort of narrow, verging-on-the-dangly bit to a much gentler curve.

I am soo lucky with my skin - with my past awful diet and my dodgy hormones and my 54 years, it's still relatively wrinkle and sag free!

That's great news. It's tough to be optimistic sometimes with the loose skin thoughts in your head. But glad to hear it's all working out for you and your fabulous neck!!

yay for you!!! I do this fun exercise when i'm driving, press your tongue up against the roof of your mouth with your mouth closed - gives a nice pull under the chin and seems to be helping with the sag/chin situation !

I'm so glad to hear this! My wattle has turned into a cameltoe under my chin (two ropey cords that hang a bit down)...hopefully things will tighten up with time. If not, then...
